Beathearts rewind #34: Big Joe Krash - Break the chain

I don't think we've credited KRS-One skills as a producer here on Beathearts before. 1994 was a great year for hiphop and an amazing year for KRS-One. One of the perhaps lesser know releases he put out that year was the combined comic, animated video and cassette release of Big Joe Krash Break the chain.

Typical '94 hard dirty boom-bap beat to make your head nod but what made it different was the packaging. The slow-pitched voice of the Big Joe Krash character combined with the video story telling that at least I had never seen before. Maybe I'm a sucker for concept records but I just love when artists put in that little extra thought into the story and/or the packaging around a tune. Kris Parker we salute you!
